Interview: Thirty Seconds To Mars Attempt To Have Fun On New Album
“It was interesting to make an album without so much conflict in our lives,” Jared Leto told Radio.com. “Because the last album we battled our record company and there was this massive lawsuit.”
While recording 2009’s This Is War, Leto, his brother Shannon and guitarist Tomo Miličević, were sued for $30 million by their label, EMI, for failing to deliver the third of five albums. The band eventually made a documentary centered around the breach of contract lawsuit called Artifact, which Leto directed under the pseudonym Bartholomew Cubbins. The film has been making the festival rounds and recently played SXSW.
“This album was really fun,” said Leto. “We didn’t have that pressure. We didn’t have those distractions.”
